Emissions: lasting solutions

The world is aware of the need and urgency of reducing emissions.

There are two paths to be prospected, which involve changes: 1st) Use cleaner generation sources and 2nd) Decrease energy consumption.

As for cleaner generation, there are initiatives from a list of committed countries, with timelines, which should ensure substantially lower emissions within 10 years.

On the consumption side, it is necessary to act with determination to "close the numbers" because only taking care of the generation side will not be enough, and by far!

And here comes a suggestion with a big impact on energy consumption and emissions: significantly reduce car sizes.

Today the car is much more than a necessity for transportation. It's a status symbol. All those who can, migrate throughout their lives to bigger, heavier, more energy consumers and that generate more emissions for their manufacture.

It's high time to change this paradigm!
